Half Baked thematthatter Cow Pies

Named for someone that stands in combat boots waist deep dealing with bul bureaucracy all day long making sure things are safe to eat.  Here is a field expedient recipe that really doesn't require baking at all. Actually the opposite, refrigerating things down to the optimal safe holding temperature between 35 to 38 degrees F.

Make this delectable pudding pie from store bought ingredients and packed with the wholesome goodness of pure grade A milk. Contains enough refined sugar  to down a cow after a sugar high.

Moooooo...

CAUTION: Preparation involves a lot of stuff in the kitchen and guaranteed to make a mess.  Clean up thoroughly and sanitize afterwards.  Allergy warning:  This ible may have been processed by someone who may be nuts.

Step 1: Great stuff...

Picture of Great stuff...
Grab a bunch of things that may already be in your pantry.

You need two different kinds of cookies, dark chocolate colored and light vanilla cookies.  Mine are the regular creme-filled in the middle sandwich cookies.

Chocolate pudding mix or a light color pudding mix that you can color with the addition of cocoa powder.

Butter

Milk to prepare the pudding mix.

To make the custom formed pie plate:

cardboard

glue

paper

tinfoil, the same stuff you can use to make hats

refrigerator to chill the product

True homemakers or chefs can use homemade or from scratch ingredients.  You can then guarantee you are getting fresh but then again, I am not a master baker.

this is like the coolest thing ever, I imagine you researched this with a 1989 world book encyclopedia "C" open staring at pictures of cows.

I had an opportunity to sit down with "the"matthatter once. He is surprisingly humble person even though he was born and raised in the best state in the Union, which coincidentally has a member of the bovine as a State animal.

Growing up in the country, not everyone had access to frisbees or footballs, so you had to improvise. You can get about 8 good tosses with a cow chip before it falls completely apart.

For New Yorkers, cows come from New Jersey, cross the mersey. I never did get to go on any Fresh Air Fund trips. I am guessing football season was during the drier months.

You can only hope when you get home that the missus and the kids have been waiting all day to give you a bunch of cow pies.
